Dena is away again, so I get the honors of presenting you with this week's trivia! Here goes...

 

What is the only date from 1793 to the present that the U. S. Mint did not coin cents?

 

First post that correctly answers the above question wins two Intercept Shield Double Protection Boxes. Each holds 10 graded coins.

 

Don't forget, we also draw for a runner-up prize from all posts with a correct answer.

 

Good Luck!

 

 

REMINDER: The Numisma-Quest ends/ended on Saturday at midnight EST. Entries after that time will not be valid. See the Trivia Info post for more details.

 

 

When you post your answer, only the administrators can see it. Stop back each Monday. We will make all the posts visible and announce the winners.

Wow! I actually won this time (not just a slider wink.gif). Thanks! (I could feel the presence of the Slightly Evil One online when I answered, so he must have hit his "sumbit" button flaming on my tail! laugh.gif The timing was luck - I was on my way to a meeting!)

 

Thanks again everyone! Hoot
